City break in Porto. Active leisure ideas for Porto - attractions, recreation and nightlife

Ponte / Bridge Visiting the nightclub will be the most logical conclusion after tasting the port wine in Porto. If you are looking for incendiary motives of African music, visit the Number One nightclub. Those who are still delighted with Boney M, ABBA, and David Bowie, then M80 will be very suitable. Fiéis ao Pop will introduce the novelties to European dance music. La Movida Beach will conquer the riot of tropical colors - Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms will enhance this sensation a hundredfold. Fans of nightlife will also like the Armazem do Cha club, which every night is lit rockers, and Hard Club with a selection of more "heavy" hits.
